What’s That Brown Cloud on the Horizon? How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

 

Living in the desert, Arizona homes can experience higher levels of dust and other contaminants than homes in other climates. As a result, it’s important to consider your home’s indoor air quality and learn what you can do to ensure a healthy environment for your family.

Those who suffer from allergies can be especially susceptible to issues from poor air quality in the home. Other signs your home may have poor indoor air quality include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Nausea

Many symptoms resulting from issues with indoor air quality appear similar to the flu and often go undiagnosed.

To help improve your indoor air quality, start by contacting John’s Refrigeration to learn about our air quality services. There are a number of simple steps to take to help insure healthier indoor air quality:

  • Check the duct system: Air contaminants like dust, pollen, and other environmental toxins can get into your home and circulate through dirty, leaky ducts. Getting ducts cleaned, checked for leaks, and repaired is a valuable first step for protecting the air you breathe.
  • Install an air filter: After checking and sealing the duct system, John’s can install our Fresh Air Filter System that will help continue to keep the home ventilated with clean air. Air filters catch pollutants before they enter the indoor air.
  • Beware of carbon monoxide: Carbon Monoxide is an odorless but poisonous gas that can come from your heater, furnace, fireplace, or other gas appliances and tools. Undetected, it can cause a number of health issues and can be fatal. When we conduct a heating repair service, we check for things like cracks in the heater, where carbon monoxide can leak.
  • Add a humidifier: Our dry climate leaves the indoor air lacking moisture, causing skin issues, potential respiratory problems, and increased dust. Adding a humidifier to the system can help alleviate these issues and allow homeowners to manage the humidity levels in the home.

To schedule an inspection to check on the quality of your indoor air, contact John’s Refrigeration at (480) 718-1172.

What is an energy audit?

Friday, January 8th, 2016

 

Are you seeing constant spikes in your electricity and/or heating bill? Have you ever questioned the efficiency of your heating system or the working order of your washer and dryer? If you’ve answered yes to both these questions, you should seriously think about having a professional conduct an energy audit in Gilbert AZ or wherever your home is located in the East Valley. The objective of an energy audit is to pinpoint places or parts of your home where you are losing energy.

At John’s Refrigeration, our energy audit process is both unique and comprehensive. The first part of our process is to schedule an appointment with the homeowner to talk about their concerns while asking questions about the home’s current energy efficiency.

After the initial meeting, the technician will inspect the entire property, including the ductwork, attic and/or crawlspace, the air conditioning and heating system, and the lighting and appliances.

Following the inspection, the technician will perform some tests to get reliable readings on the efficiency of the home. These tests show if the home has any energy leaks and helps determine if the home has positive or negative pressure.

Upon completion of the tests, we present the homeowner with our recommendations and provide a plan of action. A variety of issues can be the cause of inefficiencies in the home. Oftentimes we suggest an upgrade of appliances to Energy Star systems, but more times than not it tends to be a heating unitissue and that’s where we dig a little deeper.

John’s Five Step Home Efficiency Program

The box on the roof or exterior wall of your property has no function without proper ventilation; it’s just a box that blows hot or cold air, which is not efficient and offers little in the way of true comfort. If there are any gaps or repair work needed to the heating system, we have the experience and expertise to carry out the job through our five step process:

  1. Size and seal your duct system properly
  2. Fix pressure balance problems
  3. Fresh air & purification or filtration
  4. Balancing
  5. New HVAC equipment

For a full overview on our five step approach please take a look at this video.

Only by addressing all issues (i.e. steps one through five) can we truly help you live in a home that is safe, comfortable, and reliable – one that really works for you!

 

Why Is My Furnace Short Cycling?

Monday, November 30th, 2015

Cool weather has come to Mesa, AZ, and while that is a relative term out here, we still need our heaters to keep us warm during those chilly desert nights. That means you need to pay close attention to your system and act promptly when any problems arise. Otherwise, it could leave you without any heating just when you require it the most. Among the most common and problematic issues with your furnace is short cycling, where it turns off and on rapidly multiple times throughout the day, often without adequately heating your home. Why is your furnace short cycling and what can be done about it? Read on for the answers. (more…)

Simple Signs of Heating Trouble

Monday, November 16th, 2015

As our heaters see more and more use in the latter part of the year, Mesa, AZ residents need to keep a careful eye out for signs of trouble. Heating problems have a way of sneaking up on you, and something that’s easy to fix now may cost you a pretty penny if you let it wait for a few weeks. A good maintenance session from a trained professional can help you spot signs of heating trouble, but you yourself can keep an eye on your heater as well, and call in a professional as soon as you detect anything out of the ordinary. What does “out of the ordinary” mean? We’ve provided a quick list below. (more…)

3 Reasons to Perform Heating Maintenance Now

Monday, July 27th, 2015

We’re in the throes of summer here in Mesa, AZ, and air conditioners tend to be the focus as we work to keep our homes cool. But our winter nights can get pretty chilly out here in the desert, and before you know it, you’re going to want your heater ready to go. Now is the ideal time to perform a heating maintenance session, in which a technician performs a number of little repairs and corrections designed to keep your system functioning at its peak. Why should you do it in the summer, when you don’t actually need your heater? Here are 3 good reasons. (more…)

Can I Do My Own Heating Repairs?

Monday, January 5th, 2015

If you have discovered ways to perform multiple repairs around your household using your own tools and know-how, it’s tempting to think that you can apply this same dedication and independence to the central heating system that keeps the home warm during winter nights. After all, what’s wrong with trying to fix a small problem with a furnace or a heat pump on your own, rather than calling a professional contractor to handle it?

Actually, quite a lot is wrong with this! Although there are some basic maintenance tasks you can accomplish on your own, such as regularly changing a heater’s air filter, when it comes to repairing a heating system, you must leave the work to trained technicians. In fact, in many localities, it is illegal for anyone except licensed professionals to work on natural gas-powered heaters.

Thankfully, trained assistance for repair is readily available from Johns Refrigeration. We offer speedy, dependable heating repair services in Mesa, AZ and the surrounding areas, and we’ve helped homeowners stay comfortable since 1970. Call us whenever you experience difficulty with your residential heating system.

Why Heating Repairs Are Not DIY Jobs

Safety is the number one concern when it comes to fixing heating systems. The majority of home heaters are gas-powered furnaces, and it is vital that professionals handle any work associated with them. Not only are the repairs themselves potentially hazardous, but poorly done repair work can lead to a furnace that leaks carbon monoxide. Only professional work will give you reassurance after repairs are completed that the heater is working at its highest safety levels.

Even if you don’t have a gas furnace in your home but instead use an electric furnace or a heat pump, you still must leave repairs to professionals to make certain the work is done correctly. Modern furnaces and heat pumps are far too complex for amateurs to fix; in fact, simply diagnosing what is causing a malfunction is extremely difficult without years of training. An incorrectly applied repair is often worse than no repair at all.

Finally, professional heating repairs will go faster. Instead of struggling for hours or even days to perform repairs on your own that most likely won’t succeed anyway, you can call experienced technicians to take care of the work in only a fraction of the time.

The lure of saving money by going “do-it-yourself” may feel strong, but keep in mind that this is actually an illusion: a badly repaired heater will cost money because of future repairs and inefficient performance—and this is before you consider the potential safety risks! Don’t make this mistake: call on Johns Refrigeration for heating repair service in Mesa, AZ that will have your troubles solved for the long run.

What Does NATE Stand for and Why Is It Important to My Heating Repair?

Friday, December 12th, 2014

One of the most important things you want to do when shopping for a new HVAC company is look at their certifications. Certification by professional organizations is one of the best ways to tell if your HVAC company actually has the expertise to take proper care of your HVAC system. One of the most well-known HVAC certification organizations is NATE. Let’s take a look at what NATE actually is, and why you should care.

NATE

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, and is a non-profit certification organization. It was founded in 1997 with the specific purpose of providing verification of expertise to professional HVAC companies across the country. NATE does this through the administration of difficult tests to gauge the knowledge of HVAC technicians. There are multiple tests, covering a wide range of HVAC topics. These tests are not purely academic, and are instead designed to gauge the actual ability of the technician to address various HVAC problems in the real world

Why is it Important?

NATE is not the only way to tell if your HVAC company is trustworthy. However, it is a nationally recognized metric and is widely used because of its reliability. If you hire a company comprised of NATE-certified technicians, you can be assured of their expertise. If your HVAC company doesn’t employ NATE-certified technicians, you might want to ask why. From the company’s standpoint, there really isn’t a good reason to avoid certifying their technicians. Unless, of course, they aren’t as qualified as they should be.

When you have a need for any sort of heating or air conditioning repair, you want someone working on it who knows what he or she is doing. Having inexpert technicians trying to fix your heating or air conditioning systems can make the problem much worse and require multiple subsequent visits. That’s the last thing you want.

If you’d like to know more about how NATE works, and why we certify all our technicians, call John’s Refrigeration. We provide heating repair throughout the Mesa area.

3 Signs That You Need to Schedule Repairs for Your Heating System

Friday, November 28th, 2014

When is the last time you called a technician to look at your heating system? If it’s been a year or more, your unit is unfortunately at risk for developing problems that could result in a total system failure. Many homeowners don’t notice the signs of heating repair, or they are not aware that the behavior their heater exhibits is unusual or hazardous. We’ve put together a few of the most common signs that your heating system is in trouble, so you know what to look for in the future.

  • Short Cycling: Short cycling may be indicative of a couple of issues, but in any case it’s bad news for your entire unit. If your system turns on frequently only to shut off immediately afterwards, it could be due to an improperly sized system (which may need premature replacement) or a broken motor or faulty electrical component. In any case, it causes your system to become run down and requires immediate attention.
  • Low Airflow: If you’re not feeling enough airflow in your home, it could be because of a problem with the components of your heater or a dirty filter. Even after you change the filter, you should call a trained technician as well who can make sure it’s not actually a larger problem or an issue in the ductwork. Leaky ducts are a leading cause of low airflow and can lead to efficiency issues and a worn down HVAC system.
  • Strange Noises: If you hear strange noises from your home heater, you should always be suspicious. Any heating system makes a little bit of noise, but a loud banging or clanking noise, a hissing, or any sound that doesn’t seem quite right is nothing to brush off.

We recommend scheduling annual maintenance as well, so that you can keep such problems from reoccurring in the future. Maintenance involves a thorough inspection, cleaning, and a few adjustments of your heater before the heating season begins or toward the beginning of the season. Call Johns Refrigeration to learn more about maintenance or for quick repairs when you notice the signs that you’re in need of heating repair. Schedule repairs for your heater in Mesa with us today!

Should I Repair or Replace My Heating System?

Friday, October 31st, 2014

If your heating system is on the brink of failure, you’re faced with an important decision: should you repair or replace your unit? Of course, if your system still has a couple of decent years left, you likely want to make smaller repairs to avoid the high cost of replacement. On the other hand, if you pay to repair your heating system now, only to have another part break shortly afterwards, you may regret your decision not to schedule replacement in the first place.

So how do you decide which choice is most cost effective? Is your older system worth the cost of repairs, or would replacement turn out to be a better option? In this guide, we’ll go over a few points to consider when deciding what to do with your older heating system. The friendly professionals at Johns Refrigeration can inspect your system to help you make the right decision about heating.

  • It’s cheaper to replace an entire system than repair it piece-by-piece. When one component of your older heating system has broken down, chances are that the other components are not too far behind. When you replace each part individually, you end up paying more in the long run. On the other hand, if your system is not too far along in its lifespan, a simple repair usually does the trick, provided the heating system was properly sized during installation.
  • After a certain age, heating systems are at a high risk of breakdowns. Most furnaces last up to 15 years, while heat pumps can last even longer. However, this is only true with proper maintenance. If your heating system has not been examined by a technician in many years, it may be close to failure, even without any noticeable repair needs.
  • Professional technicians are qualified to handle this type of decision. The best person to help you decide on the future of your heating system is a trained technician. They have the tools and the experience to tell when your system is at a high risk and whether an inexpensive repair will do instead. Furthermore, they may be able to recommend a more effective and efficient system for replacement.

At Johns Refrigeration, we’ll help you make the best decision about your new heating system with a thorough inspection and assessment from certified technicians. Call us today to learn more about heating repair service in Mesa, AZ.
